Marital Assets in Divorce
To see that clients have the ideal outcome, we partner with forensic accountants, financial analysts, business valuation specialists, and other experts required in your unique case.
We understand the many complexities of property division including multistate and international property, trust funds, stock options, restricted stock units, pensions, benefit plans, and other compensation packages. We fight hard for your fair share.
Separate Assets in Divorce
The law on separate, non-marital property continues to evolve in Georgia, and Holland Roddenbery is on the front lines of these issues.
Separate property can include property acquired before the marriage, property acquired during the marriage through gift or inheritance from third parties, and property that can be traced to those properties. We advise clients on how to protect or attack separate property claims, how to act to protect those assets during the divorce proceeding (for example by not putting them in jointly titled names or accounts with the opposing spouse), and how to best advocate for the result our clients desire. We have successfully argued our clients’ positions on assets ranging from real estate, severance pay, deferred compensation, stock options, stock awards, pensions, and retirement accounts.
Trusts in Divorce
Trusts are used by many clients and their families before them for tax planning and asset protection. Trusts are an increasingly active battleground in divorce disputes as clients try to protect the assets in a trust from the other spouse or as clients try to access trust assets for division and distribution in divorce.
Holland Roddenbery has substantial and sophisticated experience in both defending and attacking trusts in the context of divorce.
We have been invited to speak at state and regional conferences because of our expertise in this area. Holland Roddenbery is on the cutting edge of trusts in divorce issues, and we work creatively to protect and advocate for clients.
